Vintage YORK Grand Rapids Alto info please

Hi all, New to your group, please forgive the fact that I am a trumpet player. I recently retired and am looking to occupying my time with saving vintage instruments and finding homes for them. I recently acquired this sax, Ser # 966xx and believe it to be a 1931. The pads are in great shape, the horn looks very good, doesn't need restoring. I am looking to learn more about saxes so I am asking for opinions as to quality and possible value. In my limited research so far I believe this to be a stencil horn, suggested it may have been made by Martin because of the soldered tone holes. Pictures can be seen at:

    Hi! 

    I saw this sax for sale on craigslist a couple of months ago. I'm not sure if it was you that I spoke with, but I was looking for a sax for my nephew. I haven't stopped thinking about it since...for myself ;)

    I played in high school and live in Grand Rapids. I want it bad.
    Do you still have it? If so, give me a call to discuss a price.

    Thanks!
